    "If you're having problems giving medications to your pet, ask your veterinarian," Quirk says. It might be possible to get a liquid form of the medication, so you can just squirt a syringe into your pet's mouth. You might be able to disguise the bitter taste of medications with beef or tuna flavors, or hide the medication in a product called a Pill Pocket that makes the pet think it's getting a tasty treat. Some medications can be given with a patch or rubbed on the skin. When you don't struggle with your pet about medications, the two of you can keep a stronger bond together.

Cats, being obsessive compulsive with themselves being clean, will lick any impurities off. So when I did that, my cat Angel would like all the medication off her paws. Thats how she would take the medication and it worked. We still have a strong bond, so that didn't alter anything.
